Braking

BECAUSE EVERY CENTIMETRE COUNTS

When a truck slams on the brakes, several tonnes of weight must be stopped as quickly as possible.

This can only be reliably achieved with high-quality brake components and a well-maintained and impeccably functioning braking – because in case of an emergency, every centimetre counts.

For this reason, febi bilstein exclusively offers products with OE matching quality in the field of commercial vehicle braking. Safety is always the focus: Our internal quality control tests the offered brake components for various requirements and loads. This is how we contribute an important part to road safety.

Balance of performance, driving comfort and longevity

Precision fit

Safety: Maximum braking performance, short braking distances

Brake discs

EXTREME TEST TRUCK RACING

The commercial brake discs from febi bilstein are not just tested anywhere:

In order to test whether the febi parts withstand the tough truck racing test, they have been extensively tested in 2017 at the race track in the Czech town of Most.

The brake discs were installed in the race truck of three-time European champion GerdKörber and subjected to the ultimate stress test under racing conditions.

The result was clear: The performance of the discs was so convincing that Körber adopted them for regular racing operations.

The ultimate endurance test

100% brake effect

The ultimate endurance test

For all articles of this product group, compliance with manufacturing tolerances is therefore self-evident.

Every brake product from febi bilstein is precisely manufactured to ensure a 100% brake effect under all driving conditions.

Brake pads

FOR HIGHEST REQUIREMENTS

Only the perfect interplay between brake disc and brake pads allows the optimum functioning of the braking. But only if the brake pad fits the brake disc, the best possible friction coefficient is achieved.

Brake pads are highly stressed components because they have to withstand temperatures of up to 800 ° C and must be mechanically extremely resilient. Furthermore, brake performance cannot be reduced by so-called brake fading at high temperatures.

Brake pads from febi bilstein are finished using the so-called “scorching” process after manufacture. This involves "baking" the brake pads at high temperatures (approx. 700 ° C). Any remaining non-cured binding material left over from production is extracted this way. As a result reduced bedding in or conditioning of the brakes, as it has been known in the past, are no longer necessary.

ADVANTAGES OF THE febi BRAKE PADS

  • Friction value comparable to OE brake pads
  • High material quality, compression and shear strength
  • ECE-R 90 certified
  • Reduced bedding-in period, fully resilient after installation
